Cashier-less Starbucks Opened in Midtown Using Amazon’ Technology

The new Starbucks that opened at 111 East 59th Street includes a new feature – cashier-less checkouts. The concept that utilizes Amazon’s technology is the first to open in Manhattan; and is intended to give the coffee purveyor’s customers the “ability to choose which experience is right for them as they go through their day.”. Looking ahead, the two national companies plan to open two more similar stores over the next year, including one in the New York Times Building, 620 Eighth Avenue.
